Three things about the below picture.
1. My palm tree head. I think today I am going to try one palm tree on top of Brooke’s head instead of the normal two that I do.
2. I really liked playing in the dirt as a baby and I did my same cheesy smile back then that I do now.
3. Every time I put Brooke’s hair in pigtails and I take her somewhere someone comes up and tells me that she looks like Boo from Monsters Inc because of her big eyes and pig tails. What do you think?
Cowboy Quesadillas for din din. We put chicken, mozzarella cheese, beans, brown rice, corn and green pepper in ours and topped it with pico and avocados.
We each did our own toppings and I clearly layered mine more correctly. It is hard to be the person in the marriage that is always right.
And the finished product with a side of fruit and a ranch/bbq dipping sauce in the back.
Our appetizers before dinner were Doritos. This is the first time in a year that I have wanted to eat Doritos. When I was pregnant with Brooke I was craving them like crazy and I ate way too many of them when I had morning sickness and couldn’t even look at them again after. I am happy they are back in my life again.
Runners: Injured or not, we should all be doing hip strengthening exercises!
I 100% believe that the main reason for my recent IT Band injury were my weak glutes/tight hip flexors (along with too many miles with the jogging stroller and jumping into spin too quickly). I neglected strength training (I don’t think that doing a Jillian DVD once a month was enough;) and stretching and tried to run fast and far with weak glutes and hips and boom… injured!
THIS article talks about why you should include hip strengthening and mobility exercises in your daily routine with a bunch of examples of what you should be doing!
I have been doing the Clamshell (without the resistance band, mine are coming in the mail… I ordered THESE ONES) and boy do they work:
Let’s make a deal. If you run then make hip strengthening part of your routine so that we can avoid some injuries together:)
What factors caused your last injury? Do you do any hip strengthening exercises?
Ever had a food that you ate when you were sick and then you didn’t want to eat it again after for a while?
What is your number one favorite fruit?
Running, resting or cross training today?
